Today, I had lunch with a girlfriend. She is super smart, entrepeneurial, full of life and just a wonderful person.
I met her in Houston at a business conference and got to know her over a week because she was good friends with a friend of mine. Actually, our mutual friend insisted that we meet and catch up. Which we did and have never looked back.
Her name is Michelle Carden and many people may remember her when she gained profile and respect for building a very big company in Australia and selling it off for millions.
She sent me a text this morning to see if I was available for lunch. I hate doing lunch during the work week because it takes me away from my beloved computer, but she said she had some feedback on my IM for me, so it really was in my best interests to go.
5 Minutes with Michelle is worth a fortune. If you don't become so inspired that you are literally jumping up and down on your chair, you are certainly getting insight into her brilliance as a business woman and as a human being.
She is dynamite. Her energy is completely contagious and she has so many business ideas up her sleeve, that I am surprised how she can possibly walk around.
What I learnt today was simple; A lunch date with someone can change your outcomes.
She gave me some advice that superceded that of everyone who has been speaking to me about my Information Memorandum to date. Now, I have taken that advice, raced back to the office and I am straight back to work.
Thanks Michelle. You rock!

Excellent blog post. I definitely appreciate this website.
It's going to be end of mine day, but before end I am reading this great post to improve my know-how.
It's hard to find educated people about this subject, however, you sound like you know what you're talking about!
It's remarkable to go to see this web site and reading the views of all friends on the topic of this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting familiarity.
I find that lunch with friends is often a simple way to get motivated. Being able to talk through one's ideas, thoughts and any general chit-chat is a great way to both vent one's mind and then refresh and rebuild.
I take every opportunity to have lunch with a local entrepreneur whom I call my 'mentor' (though he doesn't really know that). We discuss our current and future goals, then discuss where things might be modified or amended. If the opportunity arises or is deemed necessary, we combine forces to complete ideas.
So I agree with the sentiment that lunch equals money, but I primarily use them to stay motivated!
PS. Yes, another great article - and one that has reminded me to stay motivated!
